The guy I just started seeing is really into the rugged look so he generally sports a good layer of facial scruff. While, aesthetically, I'm all for the stubble, I have very sensitive skin and kissing is causing some problems. The next morning, I usually wake up with a rather angry and noticeable rash and breakouts around my mouth and nose. I plan on talking with him about it and I have no problems with this, but I was just wondering if anybody else deals with this problem and knows any tips for coping with the irritation (aside from getting him to shave). Thanks!

My ex-boyfriend had a lot of scruff. While it's very attractive, it's not necessarily the most comfortable experience. What I did to prevent the angry rash, other than asking him to shave more often, was to kiss him lighter and not let him get too forced into my face while making out. Yeah, it's awkward, but it worked out for me and the angry rashes decreased.
Also, after you two are done, you can clean your face with whatever facial cream/scrub/mask you use to prevent the breakouts. But for the rash, only time would help me.
